The President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa has relaxed Zimbabwe’s coronavirus lockdown with schools reopened for examination classes to operate while the resumption of other classes pends until next week Monday.

Three classes were granted permission and these include Grade 7, Form 4 and Form 6.  The permission to reopen the schools was commissioned with strict instruction for the institutions to follow the World Health Organization (WHO) Covid19 guidelines as all resuming schools had students wearing their facemasks, observing social distancing as well as sanitizing their hands and checking temperature before entering the various classes. Alongside students, teachers were also wearing facemasks and observing social distancing to ensure everyone was on a safer side.

In keeping with the guidelines, many groups of schools have given the assurance that all writing students were safe as they are putting in maximum efforts to make sure everyone observes the protocols that have been put in place.

Many schools in provinces across the country have resumed and commenced preparations for the resumption of most of their students in the coming weeks with the hope that activities would continue in order to restore normalcy to society.
